This art piece gives honor to the voice of black women. It is the voice that enriches and sustains movements and it's heroes; unfurling love to the furthest shore and speaking for the speechless. It is the voice that creates from nothing and creates a future for her children and country. It is a life giving voice. A most trusted yet devalued voice in society. The black woman’s voice is welcomed when used for the benefit of others, but never for herself. Her voice becomes too loud and angry when raised for self-advancement. From the black woman’s lips to every heart flows love, life and power. What if she took it away?
